AVG Update Failed (Access is forbidden)

Just like the title says: "AVG Update Failed (Access is forbidden)"
Thats what I get when I try to update my workstations here.  Both at the workstation and through the AVG admin console.
I have followed an AVG KB article about this issue, but they all go off the assumption that there is a virus present and blocking access to updates.  Ive followed those directions and got nowhere.  Ive called AVG support probably 5 or 6 times at this point and they want me to run a series of tools to gather information and report it back to them, but that tool is not working on the workstations here for some reason.
Also, I have ran the avg removal tools(which apparently does not uninstall the remote agent, FYI), uninstalled locally and through the admin console, and reinstalled the remote agent and still got nowhere as of now.  This is affecting probably 10-15 different workstations.
Anyone have any suggestions?

see the following link it may be of use as the problem is the same/similar and some of them have managed to fix it. have you added/changed any security related hardware/software recently?

Yes, I found that one yesterday and gave it a shot.  There are two different versions of that rmagent file out there that Ive tried.  No luck from either one.
And no, no recent changes to any harware or software.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

AVG is one of the WORST AV's out there.   WebrootSpySweeperW/Antivirus based on SOPHOS is the best


It is AMAZING how lightweight... Lightest, Most Effective Antivirus based on SOPHOS I have ever seen.  ( http://www.advmolink.com )

What I like about WebrootSpySweeperW/Antivirus is that it cleans Viruses/Malware and flags websites (intercepts the website's attempt to re-infect) in REAL-TIME.    Find it at; http://www.advmolink.com

WebrootSpySweeperW/Antivirus is the cheapest way to get the SOPHOS Antivirus Engine protection on your computer updated several times a day. ( http://www.advmolink.com )

There is current a $10.00 OFF coupon for WebrootSpySweeperW/Antivirus on the SIDE SCROLL at   http://www.advmolink.com

are your workstations on a domain?

Somehow I found a workaround/fix.  I setup a manual update proxy on the admin console and sent that out to all the workstations I could hit and it started working.
Thanks for the input though guys.  Much appreciated.
